Dosimetry Check Dose Algorithm
Dosimetry Check uses a pencil beam algorithm. See the manual for
details. Some people initially think checking the plan with a different
pose a problem. But this has not been the case. Persons using Dosimetry
with Phillips (Adac) Pinnacle, Varian Eclipse, Nomos Corvus, and Precise Plan
are getting good results.
In Step 2 above we show a comparison with the Pinnacle system with
3D superposition and Dosimetry Check.
Using an independent system to check plans adds redundancy
and by doing so increases quality assurance. We would expect algorithmic
differences to be less than 3 percent in most cases, and in any event, is
something understood. The primary purpose here is not to QA your planning
system, it is to QA individual patient treatments.
